Overall Experience: It's a pretty good school. It is pretty impacted though. It's hard to get into classes so it takes a while to graduate. But we do have a new president who wants to help us graduate in time.

Overall Experience: The teachers should be a bit more understanding and willing to really go in depth with what they're teaching, especially if they know the course they're teaching is a complicated course. Other than that, it's a great environment and everything about it is unique.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall my college experience has been great. I started off at Las Positas, a junior college in California. Las Positas gave me many memories, but the one I am most thankful for is my English 7 teacher and his class. With the help of him and the enjoyable class, this is where I realized I wanted to be an English teacher. Following Las Positas, I now attend CSUS Sacramento where my experience is so amazing. The atmosphere is beautiful, this being the reason I chose the school and not only the atmosphere is great but so are the people. My favorite experience here has to be my orientation, being a new student I was extremely nervous but when I least expected it everyone was so friendly unlike most schools. Another memorable moment that definitely makes Sac State unique would be our friendly squirrels. They eat from everyone and even makes friends, they are just so adorable and friendly and you would least expect it. These reasons are why my college experience has been so great and I would choose Sac State again if I did it all over.

Overall Experience: All in all my college experience thus far has been great. I just finished my summer school program and soon will be attending my freshman semester this fall. I have enjoyed my college experience with my girlfriend since we both attended the program and are going to California State University Sacramento. I am eager to become more involved in my campus this fall.

Overall Experience: It's home. Nothing more to say.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The campus is beautiful, the area can get very warm but with over 3,000 trees around, there's plenty of shade. Only downside to having so many trees is allergy season, it get to me every time but I still love the area. The people and staff are friendly and very helpful, it is very easy to find a good and cheap place to eat in the area. There are a variety of different programs and degrees available, plus there are great advisers to help with where to go and what to do. I can't wait to start school again in the fall!

Overall Experience: I love the campus and the staff is really helpful. They are sweet and answer all your questions. The teachers understand that we, the incoming freshmen are not use to the " college" rules of a class room. They help in anyway possible and create a positive environment.

Overall Experience: My first semester was tough. It was hard to make friends at first but once the semester took off all my classmates were very nice. We all supported each other by making study groups to ensure each of us would success. The WELL is a great fitness center that is utilized by a majority of the students. It is also a great place to meet new people and workout together. The campus itself is a very calming environment. All the trees are very beautiful throughout the campus.

Overall Experience: My overall experience at my school has been good so far. I love the campus, it is full of trees and it is a modern school. The facilities and the resources are great and always helpful. On the other hand, more money needs to be put into the health and science programs at my school.

Overall Experience: I like it but it's kind of hassle right now to get everything started and get enrolled into the school.

Overall Experience: I think that the ability to commute to school is a great option, in many cases the cost of housing on campus can be outrageous and unless you work a minimum of two jobs or have help with paying bills as a student you cannot afford to live on your own as an eighteen year old. Sac State also has an amazing GE Honors Program which was a huge help in registering for classes and offers a cohort based system which not only challenges you in classes, but also allows students to make lasting friendships and be involved in their campus community. I really enjoyed my time as an undergrad at Sac State and only marked them down because the all of my undergrad was paid via student loans, some more scholarship opportunities would be great!

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students appreciate Sac State because it's pleasant, but they often wish it had more school spirit. The ones who are satisfied with it usually haven't been to other four-year universities, so they don't have anything major to compare it to from first-hand experience. Those who wish for more excitement usually mention wilder Bay Area campuses. A majority of people that attend Sac State just want a degree so they can get out. They know not to expect the typical college experience that makes for legendary times and awesome memories. Too many of them commute. If Sac State were more of an on-campus school, there would be more student satisfaction socially. If you decide to study here and want campus community, seek clubs or other social organizations as soon as possible. If you're laid-back and don't mind coming to a school where everyone just comes to get a grade and a job, make yourself at home.

Many students would be blown away if they knew how hard their education could be, but a lot of them are fine with Sac State's current academic level. Most assignments are easy, and it's surprising what students worry about. There's a writing test, the Writing Proficiency Exam, that all students must take before advancing to higher-level classes, and it has a fearsome reputation because many of them make a big deal about it. But in reality, it's nothing more than an in-class essay where you offer your opinion on a certain topic—that's all. Although most Sac State students don't think their education is lacking, when they voice concerns, it's obvious that something's missing. If they were used to consistently working harder, that test would be a breeze.
